Welcome to the seventh episode of the Get This Girl a Job, the podcast that answers your questions about transitioning from college to the professional world by demystifying the post-graduation job search process.
Katie and I interview recent college graduates to talk about the steps they took to get their first job in different industries. The questions follow the development of their career from their first year of college, to how their field of study changed, to the internships they had over the summer, to how they got hired for their very first job! We take turns conducting interviews, and every third week, we co-host a mini-episode answering questions from the audience.
Following Your Dreams
I am so excited to introduce you to the amazing Savannah Smith.
Savannah graduated from UChicago in 2017 and decided that instead of going to grad school, she would follow her dream of opening a bakery.
